How did we get here again?

banner2You know those conversations you have, those ones where you way “why don’t we just run away?” and “i’d love to go travelling one day”. Well, we had those conversations, dreamed a little, did some research and thought, actually, we could maybe give this a go. I mean, what’s the worst that can happen. All we have to do is sell everything, pay our debts off, leave our jobs and find a way to travel cheaply for as long as possible…


In the early days, we became inspired by people like http://vandogtraveller.com/ and www.vdubvanlife.com/ a.k.a. the The Indie Projects. Our initial enthusiasm turned into an obsession seeing how all these different people had broken from the norm and were travelling around, mainly in interesting vans, but crucially living cheaply and with low impact. We quickly realised that if we wanted to have true freedom travelling, we had to get a van. The van gave all the people we followed the freedom to travel to and stay wherever they chose. Many of the vans that people had converted were custom to their own requirements on the road. So we thought, with typical optimism, how hard can it be?


Later in this blog, we’ll go into more about how we got here, the highs and lows of van building. But for now, lets stay on point. Crucially, we’re proud of what we’ve built, we’ve poured our heart and soul into designing a space just for us. There is less than 1 month until we go travelling now. We depart with much fanfare on the 23rd April!


We are yet to finish the van (there’s always tweaks to do), we haven’t planned any specific route (other than we’re heading for the Alps), we don’t have anything sorted, but you know what, it’ll be fine i’m sure…
